That the lay faithful may fulfil their specific mission, by responding with creativity to the challenges that face the world today.
In his May prayer video, Pope Francis spoke on the mission of the laity. “Lay people are on the front line of the life of the Church. We need their testimony regarding the truth of the Gospel and their example of expressing their faith by practicing solidarity,” said Pope Francis in his monthly prayer video. “Let us pray together this month that the lay faithful may fulfill their specific mission, the mission that they received in Baptism, putting their creativity at the service of the challenges of today's world.”
